Canlin Energy has shown continued support for the work of the Big Hill Haven.

This week, they made their second $5,000 donation to the organization that's been committed to supporting families impacted by domestic abuse since 2016. The first donation was in 2018.

"It's something that is going to give back to the community so much," says Kaili Dale, Canlin operations administrator. "It's such a good program, and with the rise in COVID and the cases, it's going to help Big Hill Haven be able to provide resources to that many more people."

There's a long list of worthy community causes that continue to be supported by the company that owns and operates the Wildcat Hills Gas Plant, 11 km west of Cochrane. They continue to make donations in support of organizations like Cochrane Activettes, FCSS, Victim Services, the Lindsay Leigh Kimmett Memorial Foundation, and most recently made a donation in support of Rocky View Schools' Food for Thought.

Tim Adams, Wildcat Hills District Superintendent for Canlin Energy, says giving back to the community is the right thing to do.

Tara McFadden,  fund development officer and public relations officer for the Big Hill Haven, says they appreciate the ongoing support of Canlin Energy.

"It's great to have Canlin's repeated support," says McFadden. "We are so fortunate to have that community support and it really shows the people of Cochrane understand the need."

"Through COVID-19, domestic violence has continued to increase and putting extra pressure on all the services that provide support, so with funds like this we can continue to provide those programs, the outreach, the housing, and support that women need to build healthy and safe lives."

Cochranites are encouraged to "Go Purple" on Nov. 25.

"We're super excited," says McFadden. "We're getting ready and reaching out to the community to step up and "Go Purple" on Nov. 25 and really show family violence prevention is important to the people of Cochrane."
